Om Netværket

Nordisk Netværk for Avantgardestudier er et nordisk forskningsnetværk støttet af Nordforsk 2004-2007. Nordisk Netværk for Avantgarde Studier vil styrke og koordinere mindre og spredte nationale forskningsmiljøer, bidrage til at fremme udveksling af viden om forskelle og ligheder mellem de nordiske lande og gøre nordisk avantgardeforskning internationalt synlig. Nordisk Netværk for Avantgardestudier afholder en årlig konference. Netværket danner også ramme for udarbejdelsen af De nordiske avantgarders kulturhistorie i 4 bind og et elektronisk arkiv for dokumenter fra de nordiske avantgarder. Det nordiske forskningsnetværk er en videreudvikling af det danske forskningsnetværk ”Avantgardernes genkomst og aktualitet” støttet af Det humanistiske Forskningsråd 2001-2004. Under forberedelse er et Europæisk Netværk for Avantgarde og Modernisme Studier, EAM, hvis første konference afholdes i Ghent, Belgien, maj 2008.

About the Network

The Nordic Network of Avant-Garde Studies is supported by Nordforsk 2004-2007. The Nordic Network of Avant-Garde Studies aims to support and coordinate small and dispersed national centres of research, help promote the exchange of knowledge about differences and similarities among the avant-garde currents and research in the Nordic countries, and make Nordic avant-garde research visible in a European and international context. The Nordic Network of Avant-Garde Studies has a yearly conference. Within the Network an editorial group is preparing a four-volume Cultural History of the Nordic Avant-Gardes and an electronic archive of documents from the Nordic avant-gardes. The Nordic network is an extension of the Danish research network ”The Return and Actuality of the Avant-Gardes” supported by the Danish Research Council 2001-2004. A European Network of Avant-Garde and Modernism Studies, EAM, is under preparation and will have its first conference in Ghent in May 2008.

Reconsidering the Historiography of the Historical Avant-Garde(s)

CALL FOR PAPERS: Graduate Student Symposium


April 8, 2011 at The Graduate Center, CUNY, New York, NY




Reconsidering the Historiography of the Historical Avant-Garde(s)





The Ph. D. Program in Art History of the Graduate Center of the City  

University of New York invites submissions for a graduate student  

symposium on the historiography of the 20th century's 'avant-garde'  

movements in art, architecture and design. With recent major museum  

exhibitions on Dada and the Bauhaus, it has become clear that the  

discourse surrounding what Peter Bürger has termed in {please  

italicize] Theory of the Avant-Garde (1974) the 'historical  

avant-garde' has become dense enough to demand critical  

reconsideration. This one-day conference will explore the potential of  

historiography as a basis for a critical reconsideration of movements  

such as the Bauhaus, Constructivism, Dada, and De Stijl. We seek  

papers that foreground and critically engage with the historiography  

of the historical avant-garde(s) as an essential strategy for  

uncovering blind spots in existing discourse and exploring ways in  

which it can be redirected, revised, and if necessary, overturned.

The doctoral program in Art History at the Graduate Center at the City  

University of New York exists, by nature of its vertical campus, in  

close proximity to many other academic disciplines, including  

comparative literature, sociology, history, and philosophy. In an  

effort to encourage dialogue across these fields, we offer this  

conference to encourage interdisciplinary submissions and welcome  

participants working in a variety of fields and media.


Please submit an abstract of 300 words for a 20-minute talk and a CV  

to the conference organizers, Samuel Sadow (ssadow@gc.cuny.edu) and  

Michelle Jubin (michellemillarjubin@gmail.com) by Friday, November 19,  

2010. Notifications of acceptance will be sent out in early December.
